"The Staircase (Mystery)" as written by and Sioux Mckay....
Stare case lying face up
Stare cat on a mat
Looking down

Slide down the banister
Take the escalator
Slide down the banister
Or try the elevator

I was standing on the landing
Now I'm standing in the hall
Looking up

Won't someone assist me
Solve this mystery
Somebody assist me
Arrange the symmetry

Muffled footsteps on the carpet
Spiral steps start spinning
Around me

Which floor which ceiling
You're off balance
Which floor which ceiling
It's all upside down

Stare case lying face up
Stare cat on a mat
Looking down...

    General CommentI think this basically has to do with MC Escher's famous woodcut 'Relativity':
    I know the band was really into art, so it makes sense.

    General CommentSIOUXSIE: "That's more a song about curiosity and fear, it's not a great political statement or anything. It's very much a memory of them. Especially in my house, people were always falling down the stairs in it." Source: Sounds 07/04/79.
